CONNECT > Young Negotiators


The Young Negotiators Group (YN Group) is a special interest group designed primarily for AIPN members either under the age of 40 years old currently working in or interested in pursuing an international energy negotiations related career or for those who have less than 5 years of experience in an international energy negotiations role by providing career development and networking opportunities for the next generation of international energy negotiators.


The key aspirations of the YN Group include:
• Increasing membership and participation in the AIPN activities.
• Promoting networking events with the YN Group and AIPN.
• Providing tools for career development.
• Engaging the broader AIPN membership to participate as presenters at our speaker series breakfast and lunch events and networking events.


The YN Group was founded in 2009 due to the growing needs of the next generation international energy negotiators that have become an increasing part of the AIPN membership base. This is evident from the rapid expansion of the YN Group into 9 cities and a membership base of over 400 in just two years. The YN Group is always looking to expand into areas where there is a strong enough interest to promote our objectives. Please use the e-mail below if you are interested in starting a new YN Group.

As the regular AIPN membership fees apply, there is no additional membership fee for the YN Group. Both active members and student members may join the YN Group by clicking ‘Young Negotiator’ on the AIPN membership application. The YN Group leadership teams try to keep event fees low to enhance member participation.
